DIY Lightsabers

May the 4th Be With You!

It’s Star Wars Day! To celebrate I am sharing two different ways to make your own DIY lightsabers. Both are easy, but one requires a little bit of prep, while the other requires almost no prep!

Method 1: Pool Noodle Lightsabers (light prep required)


  • Pool noodles(we got ours at Dollar Tree)
  • Sturdy tape in two colors, black and silver
  •  Knife
  1.  Cut pool noodles in half
  2. Wrap bottom part of lightsaber with tape as shown above – get creative with the two colors
  3. Have fun!

My boys LOVE their pool noodle lightsabers and I love that they are soft!


Method 2: Paper Towel Roll Lightsabers (no prep required)

  • Paper towel rolls
  • Markers
  1.  Color the paper towel roll to resemble a lightsaber – simple and fun!
